Mares i3 mask

By Colin C.

Great looking and feels good when wearing 5 star

 

Spectacular field of view, outshines many more expensive masks.

By Shawn K.

I love this mask. I have the old LiquidSkin model (now discontinued), and I love it so much that I bought a new one to keep as a backup. Honestly, I can hardly tell the difference between the LiquidSkin and the non-LiquidSkin models. The buckles on the new model seem a little bit cheaply made, but not so much that they ruin the whole mask.The real strength of this mask has always been its spectacularly wide field of view.

The i3 Silicone Mask has an exceptional field of vision. Two side windows in addition to the wide front glass increase the side viewing angle significantly. Mares R&D and Design Divisions have conducted numerous computer simulations and complex studies on the shape of the human face. The results are a mask which combines great comfort with an incredible field of vision. Mask is equipped with the new high-tech buckles and a newly designed X-shaped split style mask strap this strap feature along with a double feathered edge silicone rubber skirt makes for superior comfort and fit.

Mask uses Tri-Comfort Technology. Tri-comfort technology is accomplished with small horizontal ribs between the frame and the skirt in the area around the nose. These ribs absorb and redistribute the pressure exerted by the frame onto the mask skirt, with a resulting increase in comfort. All the top Mares technologies condensed into one mask. This medium volume light weight mask has an easy to reach nose pocket that allows one-handed ear equalization even when wearing gloves, and tempered safety glass lenses. Mask is available in multiple colors, make this one sought after mask for diving. To protect your mask, included is a Mask Box.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

Right side buckle problem times 2

Was in the shop and bought the Mares I3 liquidskin about 2 weeks ago. When I got home I noticed the right strap buckle not working as it should. Replaced the mask two days later. No problem with the new mask in the shop but after two dives the same problem with the right buckle showed up again. The right side buckle does not lock the strap. This seems to be a common fault with this mask and the non liquidskin version. Do not buy this product.

The buckles on the new model seem a little bit cheaply made, but not so much that they ruin the whole mask.The real strength of this mask has always been its spectacularly wide field of view. Unlike many 3-window masks, the joints where the windows meet don't create wide lines that obstruct your view. From inside, the view is like a single, wrap-around lens. It's awesome!I've tried many more expensive masks by ScubaPro and Atomic, etc., but this little underdog from Mares is still my favorite.

 

Very low volume mask with wide range of vision

By ovid m.

from Toronto, ON, CA

My new favourite mask...Very low volume mask with wide range of vision. single lens mask with the volume of a two lens mask. For travellers the mask packs very small with compact hard case.

 

Great Mask

By Jaybee

I was so impressed with the first one I bought I decided to get another as a back up.

 

Great mask!

By Marcelo M.

Just used the mask on my recent trip to Cozumel (May 2012) and it has a great view angle and also fits very well, no leaks at all. I also have a Mares Liquid Skin (2 windows) and overall this one fits better. It fogged on my last dive, though, but I think it was because I did not scrub it properly. Being black is also good, it seems easier to clean.

 

Exactly what I ordered, and fells good

By The D.

The service was prompt and excellent products

 

Great Mask

By Jim

Great Mask. I used it before I treated lens with toothpaste and did not fog one bit. Construction is high quality and fit and comfort is superb.

 

Good mask but again fail clip

By MIamijet

Mask is very comfortable , very good vision angle but clip fails more than once , also I see a few other reviews with same problem

 

Nice Fit, No leaks.

By Bruce

Good range of vision, fits well, and is comfortable, however, I cannot get it to stop fogging up. Tried my usual toothpaste remedy three times, but to no avail. Will try Sea Gold next. Deducted one flag for the fogging.

 

faulty strap clip and sent back

By Bass

had a faulty strap clip and had to send it back. strap clips seem cheaply made.

 

too soon to tell

By SpearOps

It is alittle to soon to give a full reveiw. I put the mask on and got in the water for literally 30sec when I adjusted the strap and the strap clip broke. The short time I did wear it I had a great field of view and it felt snug on my face. I sent it back for a relacement and will finish this reveiw when I get the new mask and have more time to evaluate.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
JAYME H  Had this before and love it.
gail c  View and fit
Elvis T  Wanted to try single lens mask to see if they will work well under water... More reviews to come
PATRICK H  Florida keys scuba diving and underwater hockey
Shopper  How does the size accommodate a woman's face/hairline...and/or narrow face?
Honest Abe H  I think it should be OK. Bought for myself, but my wife tried it out on land and it seemed to fit and her face is, obviously, a lot smaller than mine!
MARK S  This is a very low volume mask with a small face footprint and should fit.
B O  In the store you would test it like you would test any mask: you place it over your face and inhale, if the mask stays in place despite the downward effects of gravity, then there is a perfect, watertight seal. But you really have to try on a mask before you buy it. This mask has worked wonderfully for me and I still use it. It fits perfectly!
Shopper  Is this a low Volume mask with a wide field of view?
ovid m  yes it is a very low volume mask with wide range of vision
Steve S  Yes, this mask is a low volume mask and the panoramic lenses make your field of view very large. This is a great mask!
DAVID A  Yes it is. A nice wide field of view made better with one piece of glass. (no split in middle) It fits my small face well.
JERAULD S  yes ti is
ROBIN M  Yes, this is a great mask with low volume and wide field of view. These are 2 of our main criteria in a mask. We have also lent the mask to others who have had trouble with leaking, which this mask does not. It seems to fit a variety of face shapes
STEVEN H  Yes it is. It does have some fogging issues, however, so be sure to give it a good "toothpaste scrub" after purchase.
Honest Abe H  Yes it is. Easy to clear and has nice field of view. Have worn it both diving and snorkeling and love it. Buy the black skirt model to keep out peripheral light from above and behind.
Honest Abe H  Yes it is. Easy to clear and has nice field of view. Have worn it both diving and snorkeling and love it
KIMBERLY G  Hi there. I'm not up on the terms but the field of view is awesome. Best mask I've used - snorkel a few times a year. The mask does feel closer to the face but not uncomfortable. Actually a very comfortable mask
JAYME H  It is not low volume, but I have bigger. The field of view is good, however this seems to be the only mask that I trouble with because I fogging. But I use baby shampoo to fight it, and it works well.
